Supervisors to adopt final redistricting map – fate of East Quincy to be decided

Who will be your next Plumas County supervisor? That will be decided Tuesday, Dec. 7, when the  Plumas County Board of Supervisors will approve an Ordinance adopting the Final Map determining supervisorial districts for the next 10 years. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Dec. 7  in the Board of Supervisors’ Chambers, located at 520 Main Street, Room 308, in Quincy. The meeting will also be available to attend virtually via zoom.

The board has held four public hearings to finalize the maps, which seek to evenly divide the five supervisorial districts based on population and contiguous area.

On Nov. 23, the Board discussed changes to the final draft maps presented, and verbally instructed staff as to additional changes.  On Nov. 30  the County posted their final three maps, available to be reviewed at: https://www.plumascounty.us/DocumentCenter/View/38730/All_Final_Options.

For more detail, the three options can be viewed on the mapping tool, which allows users to zoom in to see the boundaries:

Final Option C:

The three maps primarily focus on the division of Quincy and East Quincy between Districts 2, 4, and 5. Because Quincy/East Quincy represents the greatest population center, it’s been a challenge to accommodate everyone’s wish to be in District 4, which is Quincy centric. Part of East Quincy will either be in District 2 (which is Indian Valley centric) or District 5 (Graeagle/Mohawk Valley).
